Think he’s right. Early on Broyles was adamant about taking that position. He stated many times that if a coach had not turned around a program by the end of the third year, he would never be able to do it.
And you right about Broyles letting up on Nutt. I think because HDN was able to get the fans enthusiasm back to levels not seen for a more than a decade. Which allowed Broyles to enter into his last building phase for the Razorbacks and fans.
Let me think about what he said–Coach B will get it done in 6 years. Well, (as I recall) this is year #4, so that must mean something like 10-2 next year (year 5) leading up to 12-0 in year 6. I think that I can live with that!
I guess I read this post differently. I read it as saying a good AD (implying he doesn’t like broyles) needs to help the fans understand (through the highs and low) that it takes time, and beliema needs, and should get, 6 years to do it. I think it’s a shot at Broyles, and support for Long and CBB.
I have to say, I agree totally about the need for 4-5 explosive players. This is actually not a bad read. He is complementary of Arkansas. I tend to agree with Jack’s comments in this piece more than I disagree with them.
Crowe has said that he believes Bielema’s strategy will not work at Arkansas, because it will not give the Hogs a chance to win against teams with superior talent. That’s what he says anyway. He also has been very critical of Arkansas’s lack of effort against Auburn.
